Goodbye Dear Bootz
Our precious Bootz flew away to Cat Heaven yesterday morning. She seemed to be under the weather so I took her to the vet. X-rays revealed our darling girl had an enlarged heart and a collapsed lung--with only hours left to live. The Vet said she either contracted a virus, or cancer which had been coming on for some time. Thankfully, up until yesterday morning, Bootz had no symptoms of pain or discomfort, whatsoever.
This morning in the twilight of sleep, I felt her snuggled against my side--I felt the warmth and the weight of her body there. But as I awoke, I realized once again, our small companion has gone. Our hearts are broken, but how grateful we are to have known her these six months.
